Sintesi dell'editore

When Temple Grandin was born, her parents knew that she was different. It wasn’t until years later that she was diagnosed with autism, a brain disorder that makes communication difficult. Today, Dr. Temple Grandin is a brilliant scientist and professor of animal science at Colorado State University. Her world-changing career has revolutionized the livestock industry - each year, half the cattle in the United States are handled in cruelty-free facilities she has designed. She is also a passionate advocate for autism, using her experience to prove that people with this disorder can have “normal” lives.

To achieve this unprecedented success, Temple used a unique ability: she thinks visually, the same way animals do. Because she thinks in pictures, she can see the world as a cow, or a dog, or a pig might see it. And so she knows that animals raised for food deserve good lives and should be treated with respect. Now she gives them their voices.

Temple grandin

la massima autorità in fatto di autismo essendo autistica lei stessa racconta questa condizione professionale neurologica .
peccato che non sia in italiano ho il libro cartaceo e quindi consiglio questa splendida lettura illuminante ed in opinabile.

Insightful and educational

Watching the movie about Temple inspired me to listen to this book. I felt the book was excellent for giving a person insight into autism if you know of someone that has autism. It helped me to better understand why they do what they do. If we can understand their perspective on things, we can work together to accomplish any task, rather than being frustrated that they don't communicate 'my way'.

Excellent review of autism and associated brain function misunderstandings.

I was enlightened on atopic with which I only had a cursory knowledge of.
Would recommend this book to all educators.

Excellant ! A Must "hear"....read

Well done. Absolute vital information for All.
The information obtained should be "common knowledge". That concept needs to be revisited today....what truly is common knowledge anymore?? A wonderful book indeed. Important.

Young Adult ~ Easy to Understand

Would you listen to Temple Grandin again? Why?

I will be listening to this book again. This was a very quick listen. A book that you can listen to in one afternoon.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

This isn't actually a story as much as a partial memoir written for a younger audience. I didn't realize this when I purchased the book but it didn't matter because I still found the information very useful. I especially enjoyed the advice on animal husbandry.

Any additional comments?

If you know nothing about Autism and also enjoy cattle or sheep then take a look.

Good insight into the thoughts of an Autistic pers

I enjoyed this book, and learned a lot about Autism and how and why Autistic people think and act the way they do. I also learned a lot about cattle. Temples's life and success in her career, in spite of and because of her Autism, was amazing to learn about, and my admiration for her grew after learning more about her struggles.

Great story and narration

The only problem with this audio book is that it is too short. It’s a fascinating story about an insightful inventor. I was quite amazed.

Thank God for Temple Grandin

This book was very informative about Temple Grandin’s life work and her life experience as it relates to Autism. I think this book would be of interest to anyone that is curious about how others experience life, to those that are on the Autism spectrum and to anyone that loves animals. She makes the most of her life and has made the lives of food animals better in doing so.
